With a soiree at Vango on the top floor deck with a beautiful view of the City. I have to say this summer really went fast; I know our mothers always tell us that as we age the years go by faster and faster, and my mom was on target this year. Maybe it zoomed by because at the beginning my sister was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and I am hanging on to ever minute I can spend with her, maybe this summer I was forced to reevalute how much time I can put into Philly Chit Chat as I work full time, and Philly Chit Chat is full time, in the fall I am going to have to find a happy balance. Maybe it’s because I was going to have a big launch for Philly Chit Chat in September, now rescheduled for January.

But this is what you can expect. Philly Chit Chat will be covering the social scene, the details that go into executing a successful event, who does the flowers, who’s on the guest list and why? A calendar of events, and a few other surprises. Here are a few of my favorite people, Dino Minelli and Dana Lombardo.
Ellie, Krista and Holly
Many of the people invited to this end of the summer party were people that partnered on events that were thrown this past season. Here we have Tamara Vostok, Joe B., NBC 10’s marketing director Letizia Rubino and PR goddess Paige Wolf

Festivities Events Ian Shafer, Taylor Goddard, Laurie Satran and Alain Flambea
I’m amazed at how much really goes on in Philadelphia. Besides all the great restaurants, movies, people, the arts, museums, there are parties, openings, social events for everyone imaginable, and although there may be sites to cover some of these events, I want my readers to think, last night such and such happened, I bet Philly Chit Chat has the photos.
Kyle Ruffin, Melony Roy and Jamyra Perry
Jenise, Gregory Augustine of Augustine Interiors, Noel Bruno and Scott Barnes

Often these events bring together people for the first time that can be mutually benefiting for future events. On the right Melody, and Steve Butler work for CBS News, Tamyra works for WOGL and Paige Wolff has a PR Firm. Paige Wolff had lunch with Willingboro’s Olympian Carl Lewis the other day. laris Kresling, Tunde Kazeem and Gus Calabrase
